Yeah I agree. The big 3 are Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta oh and I guess Miami so Big 4. Austin and SA are very important but just not up there with those cities YET. But I would put SA a little tiny bit ahead of Charlotte.

Would be interesting to look at that per capita. Dallas may have more just because it's the much bigger city.

As much as I'd hate to admit it, Atlanta hands down is the capital of the South. Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin are all great cities but Austin and San Antonio are not on the level Atlanta is on. Houston and Dallas may be bigger cities and more advanced, depending on who you're asking, but they don't have the Southern tradition Atlanta has. I say Atlanta is Washington D.C., with Miami, Houston, and Dallas representing the New York, Chicago and LA of the South. Take your pick who gets what.

Houston actually does a southern feel to it. For it to be such a big city, it still has that dirty south feel to it. Atlanta just happens to be in a more tradition southern state, unlike Houston which is in Texas. That is good way of putting it though. I always though Chicago and Houston were kind of alike. Chicago being a very popular city but always overshadowed by LA and NYC, like Houston is overshadowed by DAL and ATL.
